That sucks! I'll copy and paste then!

Objective
To understand the mechanism of action of Mucuna pruriens in the treatment of male infertility.

Design
Prospective study.

Setting
Departments of Biochemistry, Urology, and Obstetrics and Gynecology, C.S.M. Medical University, Lucknow, India.

Patient(s)
Seventy-five normal healthy fertile men (controls) and 75 men undergoing infertility screening.

Intervention(s)
High-performance liquid chromatography assay for quantitation of dopa, adrenaline, and noradrenaline in seminal plasma and blood. Estimation by RIA of hormonal parameters in blood plasma, namely T, LH, FSH, and PRL.

Main Outcome Measure(s)
Before and after treatment, serum T, LH, FSH, PRL, dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline in seminal and blood plasma were measured.

Result(s)
Decreased sperm count and motility were seen in infertile subjects. Serum T and LH levels, as well as seminal plasma and blood levels of dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline were also decreased in all groups of infertile men. This was accompanied by significantly increased serum FSH and PRL levels in oligozoospermic subjects. Treatment with M. pruriens significantly improved T, LH, dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline levels in infertile men and reduced levels of FSH and PRL. Sperm count and motility were significantly recovered in infertile men after treatment.

Conclusion(s)
Treatment with M. pruriens regulates steroidogenesis and improves semen quality in infertile men.

You said this can help the drive too, right?

yes ma'am! DH and I have been taking it less than a week and we've already seen some good effects in the bedroom...

I am interested. My DH could sometimes use some help in the 'drive' department. Are there any side effects to be worried about?

Nikki can you find it at a local store?? This would be great for us! Although, maybe not worth it if we'll be doing ICSI??

Jenny - The only side effects we've noticed have been really deep restful sleep at night and DH has been sooooo freaking happy! His moods have been fantastic!!

Tammy - I'll bet you can find it at GNC or any vitamin/supplement shop. I'm not sure what all they have in Canada...
